To celebrate the 2018 Rencontres d'Arles photography festival, the Louis Vuitton City Guide is alighting in Arles with a special edition that pays tribute to the Camargue city and its world-famous festival. Arles is being honoured by Louis Vuitton with almost 150 must-see addresses, chosen by independent, well-informed authors with an eye for the unusual. The Rencontres festival and its thirty or so exhibitions feature throughout the book, and top French designer Christian Lacroix takes us on a journey of discovery around his home town, sharing a few of his favourite places. On sale in bookstores as a limited edition, a digital version of the guide in French and English will also be available from the App Store during the festival.
And because travel is also about the art of living, Éditions Louis Vuitton will be running a pop-up book store throughout the festival, July 2 to September 23, at wine bar and delicatessen Le Buste et l'Oreille in central Arles, with special events and signing sessions with authors, artists and photographers.
